Happy Weekend my friends!

I recently purchased a set of Fiskars 'LAUGH' sentiment stamps and just loved this one!  So since I wanted to play some of my favorite challenges today I figured it was perfect!

First is the challenge over at Joan's Gardens to use the following:
  • pastel peach, green and white
  • some type of layered flower
  • fancy corner and a heart
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens. 
  • Also, mention that you are doing the card/project for Joan's Gardens Challenge.

  • I'm so excited to tell you that I am 'HITTIN' THE HIGHWAY' this Thursday morning, headed for South Bend, Indiana to visit with Joan and a few other crafting friends I've met through Joan's Gardens!  I can't wait to see these ladies again ... we always have such a great time together! 

    Here are a few other challenges this card qualifies for:
    Cheery Lynn Designs - In Stitches
    365 Cards: Day 193 - Centered
    Creative Corner Challenge - Anything Goes
    Quick Quotes Challenge #29 - Dimension (4 layer flower)

    Well, it's past lunchtime ... guess I'd better go see what hubby wants to eat!  
    Hope you have a fabulous weekend and find a little time for FUN along the way!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and as always . . .
